NASCAR to Focus On One Tour for 2017

NASCAR Dropping Southern Tour

Charlotte, NC.. (Oct. 12, 2016) – NASCAR announced today tha they will be merging the Southern Tour with the Northern Tour for 2017.

With low car count the past few years NASCAR has made a decision to merge the two tours together. What will this do to some of the drivers that run a weekly series in the summer at Bowman Gray Stadium.

There would be a few event that they would run together for sure an that would be Bristol an Charlotte.

With this in mind, maybe NASCAR should make the schedule to make it fair to the southern guys by making the schedule equal to both...
